Whether you want to keep your home secure or use smart speakers or smart home gadgets to make your life easier, there’s a device for whatever you need. Learn how to create your dream smart home and connect with smart home products in hassle-free ways.
What are examples of smart homes?
With hundreds of smart devices to choose from and endless ways to personalize your experience, no two smart homes look the same. Currently, the five most popular smart products for homeowners are video doorbells, smart thermostats, smart TVs, smart lighting and virtual assistants.
But with approximately 40% of homeowners experiencing water damage, water monitoring and water security are growing priorities. “The whole home approach to protecting and monitoring essential infrastructure in a house is a key part of the possible future of the smart home,” said Jennifer Pattison Tuohy from The Verge at the 2022 Consumer Electronic Show (CES).
With the Moen Smart Water Network, you can simplify your life and enjoy peace of mind by connecting with the water in your home. Our Smart Water Network products make your everyday tasks more convenient, elevate your relaxation, and protect your home and everything in it from leaks and flooding. And with the Moen Smart Water App, you can seamlessly control the water in your house from the palm of your hand.
The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff continuously tracks the flow rate, pressure and temperature of your home’s water while monitoring for leaks. If a leak or abnormality is detected, it will alert you in real time so you can address the issue and even shut your water off automatically to protect your home from catastrophic water damage. The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff also helps you save on your water bill by tracking your water usage and setting conservation goals.
The Smart Sump Pump Monitor gives your home another layer of protection by turning your existing sump pump into a smart system so you can track water levels and performance 24/7. If the monitor detects a leak, extreme temperatures or humidity, you’ll receive alerts in real time so you can protect your home from a sump pump failure or flooding.
What are the dangers of smart homes?
Home control devices make your life more convenient by giving you the power to customize and control your smart home, but homeowners are often concerned about privacy and security, especially when it comes to passwords and data.
Smartphone and app companies update their software and operating systems frequently to improve performance, fix bugs and make security patches, and it’s important to always have the most up-to-date software on your devices to keep your home running safely and smoothly. Using strong passwords and two-factor authentication can also keep your accounts more secure.
